Boston Scientific

"Boston Scientific - Structural Heart Table Quiz in aid of Enable Ireland
A massive thank you to the Connacht hotel for their fantastic service last Thursday night. From the friendliest reception staff, bar and restaurant staff and conference and banqueting staff, they couldn’t do enough for us. They had the Ryan room all set up for us and ready to go for the evening. The finger food was delicious and to top it all off the accommodation was superb. I would have no doubt using the Connacht hotel for any event, business or personal. Thank you so much for all you do. "

"From the very beginning dealing with lovely Rebecca who has a great telephone manner to Seamus with the room set up, to the ladies on the desk and the wonderful Irene with no problem too big or small, Slava the evening before helping with my queries and lovely accommodation, Ian and his super hospitality in the restaurant, you have a wonderful team to be very proud of. I can assure you the Galvia room will be my first choice for this meeting every time. The attendees complimented the seamless coffee breaks and the papercup option which I asked for is perfect for these types of meetings and also the easy parking facility. Your location suits all counties that attended. Sound and visual was perfect I can only commend the Connacht hotel and please share my positive words with all from top management down along."

JCI Galway

"From the first day I made the enquiry with the conferencing team in the Connacht Hotel for the JCI Galway TOYP Awards, up until the end of our event, they have been professional, courteous and efficient. All their quotes and replies to my queries were sent in a timely and prompt manner by Rebecca and Natasha. On the night of the event, I was greeted by their General Manager Wayne and the banqueting team on the night, Stephen, John, Brigid, Jim and Bernie. I highly recommend booking the Connacht Hotel for a meeting, conference or event and thank the team for all of their help and hard work in making the JCI Galway TOYP Awards Galway 2017 a huge success and one of the best in Galway in recent years."
